This is probably a really weird choice for the top spot, but Jeremy's vocals make it
for me. During the verses, they just sound so desperate and full of longing. The
sporadic drum rolls as well as the lazy guitar strumming suddenly kicking into a
devastating heaver section just makes me unable to rank it any lower.
Another masterful use of contrasting dynamics, with some seriously sublime
Probably the best guitar part out of all the songs, with some incredible post-rock
Probably the most gut-wrenching song on here. I can't think of a better way to close
out the album than with this song.
|5||Song About An Angel|
A dynamic rollercoaster of a tune, both musically and emotionally.
One of the most satisfyingly epic choruses in all of emo-dom.
Probably gonna get a lot of shit for where i put this
|8||The Blankets Were The Stairs|
Contains one of the album's best moments (2:47) but Jeremy strains a lot more than he should during the
Nate's best performance on the album. The piano is heartbreaking.
Never really got into this one as much as everyone else did.
Sweet track (as they all are) but kinda takes away from the surreal, saddening mood
of the other tracks.
